March 2024 Patreon Sketches

Monday, May 13th, 2024

I wrote a LOT of words last month (over 50K!) on the new Consulting Magic book, so these were a little late, but I got ’em done. Enjoy!

  • Amber asked me to do “the artist in residence” (me) so I went a little ridiculous with it. (sold)
  • Jefferson prompted “barcodes on the brain” and really I don’t know what else you could expect from me. (sold)
  • Nick wanted a baby Chocobo.
  • Amy B said “grumple” which I decided was “grumpy skrunkle” and there he is. (sold)
  • Catherine asked for a Princess Fish.
  • Deandra asked for the Queen Bees from To Hive and to Hold, and I did the more alien-looking one, only I’m just not great at translating them from my brain so you know, don’t take her as canon lol.
  • Kelly wanted a cat + dragon, and gets this draconic kitty. (sold)
  • Eric asked for Cloud Strife in a dress, and, welp, here he is! (sold)

I hope you guys have had a great April and don’t get rained on too much!

February 2024 Sketch Cards

Thursday, April 11th, 2024

New month, new sketch cards! I’m mostly busy writing the 4th Consulting Magic book this month, but the blog won’t go totally neglected again. There’s at least these, after all.

I want to say I’m feeling messier than usual but let’s be real, these are pretty average. But hey, they’re on time!

  • Amber asked for Sportsball and I did this motley thing (sold)
  • Kelly wanted a dragon and got a tiny one with a tiny hoard (sold)
  • Jeff asked for ghost stories and got gossiping ghosts (sold)
  • Eric asked for and got beets (sold)
  • Amy B wanted cheese and got a bonus cheese-hoarding dragon (sold)
  • SaraBeth wanted something silly and Trotsky volunteered to be blobbed (sold)

Crescent Moon

Sunday, April 7th, 2024

Crescent Moon by Amy Crook

Crescent Moon, 5″x7″ watercolor and pen & ink on paper, $250.

This little night scene is more my usual thing, though the cypress trees are evergreen and therefore look alive all year long. Their long shadows are subtle against the deep blue-and-purple sky, and there’s even a cat hiding among them to grace us with its presence.

Instead of corvids we have a little trio of batty bats flying past, which you can see in the detail photo.

And now we are caught up! Though of course we’ll have February’s Patreon sketches done in a few days, and then it’ll truly all be done and dusted, and in April you’ll get some actual full art pieces.

Only a 2-day delay due to illness, whew!

From the top left:

  • Rey asked for “have some fucking grace” (sold)
  • Jefferson asked for some office crows (sold)
  • Purple Space Kitty is just because reasons
  • Amy B wanted some kind of monkey and I painted this little babe (sold)
  • Eric asked for the 15th Doctor and gets chibi ball-playing 15 (sold)
  • SaraBeth asked for “sometimes hope is just spite rebranded” (sold)
  • Nick wanted Mona from Nanalan’

December 2023 Patreon Sketches

Thursday, March 21st, 2024

And two sets of bonus cards, some trees and some more space, because I needed more extras for patron goodie packets.

I didn’t like the layout of horizontal to vertical cards in the photo so I solved it by drawing 3 bonus cards. I dunno, man, it made sense at the time.

From top left:

  • Eric asked for bubble tea with plum jellies and got a cheerful boba cup. (sold)
  • Carrots! bonus carrots.
  • Rey asked for Decemberween! and well, yeah. This was inevitable. (sold)
  • Kelly asked for “bridge to the stars or bridge of dreams” and got something a little more eldritch than possibly expected. But it’s sparkly! (sold)
  • Bonus potato! Or half of one, anyway. Look, I made curry this week, veg are on my mind.
  • Amy B wanted a hedgehog and I have delivered. (sold)
  • Jefferson wanted hot soup, and gets brains. He knows why. (sold)
  • Rebecca S asked for a castle and gets this vaguely ominous fortress.
  • Rhonda prompted “bee/hive” and so I did two different bee cards, because reasons. There is a whole fat fuzzy bee on the black card, but phone photos can only do so much.

And below, the bonus Space and Tree cards!

November 2023 Patreon Sketches

Monday, March 18th, 2024

We’re catching up! Since patron sketches get done the month after requests, December’s the last of this batch (though January will be ready before these are all posted, lol).

As requested! 😻 There’s two sets, watercolor & ink/marker, so please enjoy both.

  • Jo asked for “something banishing winter gloom with light”
  • Jeff asked for “time shift” and this winter winds blowing the autumn away is the second try (sold)
  • Rebecca W asked for “giant Lapis tiny Lenin” since it often looks that way in pics
  • Rebecca S asked for honeybees! (sold)
  • This was the first try at “time shift” for Jeff, but somehow the ‘Murica overwhelmed the Doppler reference.
  • Next comes my wee monster Andy and “ew mouthpets!” for SaraBeth (sold)
  • Eric wanted “Loth cat Ezra” and got Ezra as a Loth cat, because why not? (sold)
  • Corinne asked, “Is Mikey CAKE?”
  • And finally, Amy B asked for a Christmas vampire and got this charming, trustworthy fellow (sold)

October 2023 Patreon Sketches

Thursday, March 14th, 2024

A bunch of goodies this time! Patron stuff, non-patron stuff, and spaaaaaaace!

I got in a weird mood and did a whole bunch of things that were not for patrons before getting to those, so bear with me. From the top left:

  • Jefferson asked for “patience, dammit” and gets this grumpy yet patient crow (sold)
  • This is a bird no one asked for
  • Amy B asked for “hibernate” and gets a random dark fluffball hiding in a blanket burrito, with blep (sold)
  • Skulls 1, 2, and 3 are vaguely portraits of my holiday centerpiece, which consisted of Edgar, Ezra Bean, and Dalton, respectively. Yes, I do name my skulls. Don’t you?
  • This blue galaxy is by special request (sold)
  • Eric asked for the Great Pumpkin and I went horror with it sorry (sold)
  • Rey & Amber requested “seasons change” and get some word art (sold)
  • The lunar eclipse is for SaraBeth (sold)
  • Nick wanted Pumpkin SPICY and gets a pumpkin chili pepper jack-o-lantern pun (sold)
  • Kelly asked for dragons and gets these two little dudes (sold)
  • In the second image we have a whole rainbow of galaxies! (all sold)

Thanks again for being awesome!
